Won't replace the warmth and comfort
Of your embrace.
It calms the heart, if for a moment,
But does not soothe the soul
Or fill this deep, vast, longing.
To be with you once more.
Doesn't capture the inner beauty
It caught the glow, but not the fire,
Of life and spirit and love
That draws me in and inward,
To be one with you once more.
